Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a teacher at James B. Edwards Elementary in Mount Pleasant, SC. I teach students with profound mental disabilities. Our students benefit greatly from music therapy, which provides an assessment and treatment plan based on their needs. Although we like to include our students in music as a special area in the school, there is nothing like the attention and support that they get on their level during music therapy. The therapists are board certified and and love what they do. Our students are able to show their strengths and in just a few months time, we are able to see growth. Although our students are unable to express themselves the way that you and I do, it is amazing to see them light up with smiles, laughter and sounds as they participate in the music therapy. It is a wonderful opportunity and I would love for our students to be provided with the experience!
